Dull prints with Pro-100

Earlier this week, I purchased a Pixma Pro-100 to replace my i9900 printer.  My primary motivation was to be able to print faster, as I have been very satisfied with the quality of the prints the i9900 produced.

 

Yesterday, after I installed the Pro-100, I had both printers make prints of the same .jpg file -- a photo of a Bugatti Veyron taken in a showroom. The "source" was a 4MB file residing on my Sony VAIO notebook with an NVIDIA graphics chip; the paper was Canon Photo Plus Glossy.  As always, the i9900 produced a wonderful, vibrant picture using the factory settings.  Unfortunately, the version printed on the Pro-100 was dull and lifeless, with muted colors.  I then boosted each by 10% the color intensity and brightness settings on the Pro-100; again, while very slight improvement could be noted, the visual quality of the print was far below that of the i9900's.

 

Does anyone have a suggestion as to what I might do to bring the Pro-100 up to the same standard as my i9900?

I have taken the printer to an authorized repair site. The technician believes it is a faulty printer head and has ordered a new one to replace it (under warranty).
